Not a huge fan of the Sport Button at all. The car is just too sensitive with it on.

I was watching a show on this super super rich guy that was buying an F1 F-200X Ferrari... they were talking about how the cars were set up differently for MS and RB. Apparently MS liked a longer throw on the throttle and RB liked a more sensitive shorter throw... Based on this, I think if both drove M3s, MS would leave the sport button off and RB would turn it on.

M3_Dust... that chart is awesome. I was thinking about hacking together a graph for the comparison, but that works quite well. Thanks for posting.

This happened to me to, but i realized that it was me instead of the car. if you have sport mode engaged, the car seems more sensitive. as you push the pedal down, it jerks your foot back and forth.the car is o sensitive that it puts throttle on every time you accidentally depress the accelerator in the process..just push down on the accelerator easily, and it wont happen.

Is there a way to have this defaulted to on?

If you use software such as a Shark injector you can have Sport Mode on all the time

You can even customize DSC off as Sport on among other things to make one button press as standard to turning all sporty driving systems on

Sport mode becomes a little more user friendly with software, otherwise just mash the pedal and you'll get the same affect

The sport button turns a calm safe driver into an agressive one.

so if 2 M3's run from a dig, one with sport button on and the other with sport button off, equal drivers, they would be dead even?
